    Here are a group of SDE girls that I got to paint for a client a little while back. I don't know that they need a while lot more introduction than that- so here they are. (I think Kisa's skin got a little bleached out in the photos, but I think these pics can show off what I did well enough).

    My latest fix order arrived, and I was sick of painting gnolls. A very quick paint of some rats and rat swarms.

    Following on the heels (or simply stepping on) the Dark Hold Goblins are the Psycho Faerie Folk. The first seen here intimidating the Locals: AND with some color: ...starting a new thread is almost as much fun as finishing an old one.

    I found a bit of brush time, and put together a new Avenger. A couple more pics and rambling on my blog. And a bit of a pic with my Avengers thus far.

    Doing the blending on the leaves & flowers takes a little time, but it is easy & enjoyable work. SO, my friend, since you like the color, I took some progress photos for you. ...coming along...slowly. This is an experimental color combo for all the Flower Folk you see in the background.

    You look like a Muppet. If there was green in there anywhere, I'd look like ALL the Muppets, lol... (I washed the green liner off my fingers the day before I took the pics - I've put about fourteen hours of work into the two minis in the past eight days, counting drying times, pinning, basing, etc... Got about another hour left to go to finish painting one of the bases.) Wait... Was that a comment about my giant cartoon hands? lol In other news, I got a call from the temp agency today - there's a place that's going to start hiring for the season in a couple of weeks... The place that let me go at the end of the last season... As much as I hated it, I'll probably end up going back unless I can find something better...

    So I didn't exactly sleep in yesterday, but I plan on doing so today and to make sure I do I figure I'll stay up late browsing the forums here tonight. Now why is it that when I don't have time to read the randomness thread you guys write hundreds of posts in the blink of an eye. Yet when I have the time nobody posts in this thread for over 2 hours!?! 2 hours!!! Please don't make me browse kickstarter. I can't afford that.

    For those that have followed along with my "All Bones About It" blog, where I'm chronicling my effort to paint all the Bones 1 Kickstarter figures I purchased, I was happy today to have reached the 200th figure out of the 266 that I am painting from Bones 1. It feels good to hit another milestone on this adventure! It seems all down hill from here, with only 66 figures left to go. With some real determination I think I can get it done by the end of the year. Currently I'm working on the Dark Elves set, and this past week I completed Liela, Dark Elf Wizard, from that set. I did a quick table-top paint job on her, and I'm generally pleased with it except I feel her face came out rather flat, and her expression rather dull. I don't think I was thinking in terms of the added difficulty of doing a pure black face when I did hers. I'll be more prepared next time. :) ​As always C & C welcome.

    Sympathies, Mori. My company announced a similar-sized cut last week, but the details have not been announced. I'm now in the position of just wanting to know. Good luck! Hmm...just had a door to door salesman come by. (I didn't even think they did that anymore) He wanted to give me some kind of air purifier thing for free. COOL! Except that I would have had to invite him in, and listen to him explain how wonderful it is and how it worked for an hour. If I need to listen to somebody talk for an hour, it ain't free. I've got other things I could be doing with that hour. Besides, I've got an Electronics Engineering degree, and 20+ years experience working in the field, if I can't figure it out on my own, I obviously don't need it. End result: no free pure air for me. ETA---I hope you stay safe, Guindyloo.

    Still ok here. My area is under a tornado watch for the next 4 hours. I'm seeing a lot of wind gusts and a lot of lightning so I don't know if my power is going to hold up. I've lost track of how many tornadoes have touched down in the area. Everything had been West and North of me, I know there's been at least one fatality at a trailer park. (Is there science behind why tornadoes hit trailer parks?) There are apparently also people missing there and tons of damage. The mother of my godchildren texted to let me know that they're ok, but a tornado touched down on their street. She said there was "some damage" but she didn't expand on that. The news has talked about her area being really damaged in some places, but they haven't shown footage. Scary stuff.

    Here's my entry for this years huge reaper minis competition. We've already gotten to use him in our campaign with my little one (the mouslings mostly fought him from the inside after they got swallowed). I decided to go with a strong light and dark composition for him- I honestly think he matches the Iron Kingdoms dragons pretty well. If he had a head plate over his eyes, he'd fit right in with everblight warbeasts (except that he's a whole lot bigger).

    I kinda know how you feel. I'm going to have Schrodinger Reapercon plans until a couple months before, at the latest. The good news is that Mr. Boot has actually brought it up a couple of times and asked if I'm going again this year, so he's cool with it. I told him I'm not planning on it, but hoping I can, if that makes sense! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    The diseases are from all the smurfing they do. Why is there only 1 female smurf, and does anyone remember how it came to be so? Smurfs are brought by storks, according to the TV show. Smurfette was originally created by Gargamel as bait to catch real smurfs, but she underwent a face heel turn and joined them instead, which always made me wonder why in hell, if Smurfette is a real smurf, he did not simply create more, since he's so hot to get his hands on Smurfs for some reason. I particularly enjoyed the Twisted Toyfare Theatre fumetti in which we find out why: he eats one, and it sends him on an acid trip not to be believed....

    I've never met a smurf, but the old guy who keeps trying to catch them... garglesmell or whatever his name is... tells me they're tasty. Smurfs, so far as I know, are not related to goblins. This depends on who you ask. I asked three people. The first guy said "suffering". The second guy said "suffering. And the third guy said: "suffering. So, based on this, I conclude that the meaning of life is to have a good time. And the related question - What is best in life? To crush your undies, drive them before you, and hear the vomitations of everybody. This is pretty much their relationship: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66798-rapunzels-goblin-minions/page-8#entry1320708 Aahhh But those aren't Blue Goblins! Since the Goblins hate the Blue Goblins and the Smurfs I was wondering... And what does goblindom make of pixies? I'm allergic to pixie dust. I don't hate them. Haven't met any. When I do, I'll think of a reason to hate them. Are they happy? If so, that's why. 1. 20, which you can then use to solve for delicious. 2. Sort of a low hiss from offgassing, combined with a weird gurgle I've never identified.

    It's the curse of competence... If you work fast and do it well, people will always come to you first to get things done, or send you to finish things that other people have started. For me personally, I always get stuck with managers at my various jobs assuming that because I tend to be competent at the basic tasks they set me I'm competent at everything, and often get stuck doing things that aren't my job, that I haven't been trained for, and sometimes that are even far above my pay grade...

    I have a bandage on and I noticed that although generic beige it looks khaki (slightly yellow-greenish and a bit darker than I am) on my skin, from which I must conclude that I am very pale and very pink.

    I had a visit by the 'Paint Brush Faerie' today, she dropped off 2 W&N Series 7 Miniature size 2, and a size 1. Wasn't aware of the difference between 'Miniature' and 'Regular' when I ordered them, but for $30, I'm not going to complain.... Comparison shot to show the differences: The size 2 Miniature at the top, My size 0 'Regular' in the middle, The size 1 Miniature at the bottom. George Edit---> I held the size 2 next to my ear and 'flipped' the hairs, and I really could hear the 'Snap'.... Thought that was folk lore.... I learned...

    I painted her! I love her so much!! I've never bought her for one reason or another, but when she came in my secret sophie package, I knew I had to paint her right then. I totally, unashamedly copied Anne's color scheme because it was perfect. C&c always welcome, whatcha think?!

    You enjoy tempting things, don't you? You're serving as the early warning system for your company/coworkers. I agree. Glad to hear the (relatively) good news, Morihalda. Clearly, this is a sign of the end times. Yes, as Pingo just said, please be careful making statements like that. I experienced one of those weird, 'what's the proper reaction to have' moments not too long ago. I was driving home from a job site, and came across a pretty bad car accident involving a black Dodge Grand Caravan (which is exactly what my wife drives)and a pickup truck. Ordinarily, this wouldn't be a noteworthy event, except that I knew my wife was driving home from an appointment on that same road at approximately the same time. I knew where I was, and knew another way to get home, so I turned around and went the other route. (Emergency personnel were on scene--I would've stopped otherwise) I was kind of freaked out the whole way home, until I came around the corner and saw my wifes car in the driveway. At that point, I was quite relieved, then I realized that some other person somewhere was going to be some bad news at some point soon, which made me feel a bit like an elf. I know that thinking 'I'm glad it wasn't my wife' is a lot different than 'I'm glad it happened to them' but it is kind of weird to feel happy when someone else is most certainly not. Perhaps i think too much....
